    wow, now should be around rm350...anyone knew the latest pricing in msia...
    so since you used BS11 its much less stiff than BS10,A900T or other...you enjoy it?
    y you choose BS11 and not BS10 ?

    RM450 is the market price. You won't get it at RM350

    In Viet Nam, BS 11 is only $130.
    Badminton rackets in Viet Nam are very cheap.

    I think I've decided the BS11 is my 'go-to' racket, and I'll briefly explain why for those considering a BS11.

    1. Slight head-heaviness.
    There's some mass behind the shuttle so you're not completely dependent on head speed like you are with say something like the NS9900. Also helps it pack a punch from the backcourt. It's not so head heavy that it loses out terribly in the maneuverability stakes - still a fantastically agile racket.

    2. Stiff shaft.
    Got a nice combination of directional stability, and a slight amount of flex in the shaft to provide extra kick.

    3. Aerodynamic.
    The BS11 isn't as fast as an NS9900, but it doesn't give up much. You still get to the shuttle very quickly, to the point you forget you're actually using a head heavy racket. It beats something like the AT900T outright in this regard - faster, but with just as much punch.



    If you play a mix of singles and doubles, I think the BS11 is one of the top all-rounders. Recommend anyone to give it a shot.

    I've pretty much tried all the majors from Yonex, a few of the N-Series from Li-Ning, as well as the new Carltons etc. Nothing really compares with the BS11 because it's nothing like I've ever tried before. It is slightly head heavy but doesn't really play like one, it's not 'wooden' like a lot of even balanced rackets seem to feel, and it's quick around the court more like a Nanospeed than an Armortec.

    It's nice :)

    bro,
    do you get the chance to test out arcsb 8DX and NS9900 before using B11? Now you rank BS11 as your rank 1 option?

    The 9900 is a bit of a precision tool where headspeed is critical to make the thing work. It has fantastic touch and feedback, but I don't have the arm to full tap it's power. It needs to be played fast and hard to get the best out of it. A crazy good racket no doubt, but it takes a lot out of my shoulder and I just can't generate quite enough headspeed with it, especially at the rear.

    I haven't tried the 8DX but I think it's probably on my shopping list. It seems like a Ti-10 for the millennium!

    acrsb8DX was extra stiff therefore you need strong arm to tame this fella...power was super..i am now looking for BS11 to get some extra kick from the shaft flex...as my arm not strong to enjoy the full of 8DX at the moment..

    Hi. i just bought the BS11 in singapore, still havnt tried it out yet in a game, just had a few swings at home; but is it just me or does this racket swing into turbocharge when the racket head gets to about 12'o'clock and travels about 50% faster all of a sudden??
    Also, i would like to know whether this racket is suitable for singles. Anyone think its any use?
    I read previously that its not a singles racket at all but its head heavy so it should be suitable :s

    Thanks

    My experience is it is a good all round racket, therefore it is a bit of a compromise, it's good at everything bit not great at anything. It a really good if you want to be able to do a bit of everything with the same racket, doubles at the net, doubles hitting bombs from the back, playing singles. But there are probably better rackets if you just play singles but not many for playing doubles and singles.

    It also depends on you skill level and swing speed I have a BS11 and love it, if I did play a lot of singles I wouldn't get a different racket because out of the victor rackets which would be considered more singles orientated are just too stiff and unforgiving for me such as the SW35. When I tried the SW35 I could only just flex the shaft to get the power out of it, I had to get right behind the shuttle and really unload everything I got into it but all that meant was my accuracy and timing went to pieces on my smashes and I got really tired in one set because I to work so hard.

    Thanks for the advice, i currently have my yy ns9900 and ns7000 for doubles but just need a singles racket so am planning on buying the Li-ning n70. Probably use the bs11 for mixed doubles for smashing as its head heavy. Hope its weird feel wont completely screw my timing etc up haha.:rolleyes:
